Okay, so the Tigers sit in first place right now. However, they appear to be one of the weakest first place teams and have the problems of last place teams. So here's the question. What do we need to add to this roster to help make it a more serious contender? First things first. I think the most pressing need is for at least one more starting pitcher. Zach Miner, IMO, should be moved to the rotation. One more starter is needed after him. Ideas? We could probably also use a lefty stick in the lineup. I'd love Adrian Gonzalez, but that feels like a pipe-dream...where would we get the prospects to get him? Finally, bullpen help. This might actually be the area of least need. I know they're frustrating as a group, but Rodney, Zoom, Perry, Seay and even Lyon are decent options. One more decent arm would help. I'd love to hear people's thoughts on what the Tigers should do before the deadline.
